Hope you like it. I am still learning so be nice
These bebop sax tunes are awesome!
nicely done! I like this tune.
for the solo section, I like how you play off the rhythmic motifs from the head, but maybe try to develop some of your own rhythmic ideas as well.
something that helped me out a ton with bop soloing and learning the language and vocabulary is the Charlie Parker Omnibook. it contains his more popular tunes and some of his more famous solos transcribed; and it's even available in bass clef!

thanks for your comments.
you have a good ear. first improvisation chorus i used the same rhythm from the head.
i am still new to the bebop style and will surely try to develop my own style.
i already have the parker omnibook in bass clef, will use it for sure. regards
yeah man, it's really tough! I'm definitely still on my journey toward this, but I think the goal is to learn the bebop language incredibly well and then slowly start steering the ship toward a nice middle ground between classic bebop Parker licks and your own voice. like learning the correct grammar and traditional vocabulary of a different language, in hopes to eventually learn the phrases and slang that will best apply to you and sound like you personally.
It is fun by being tough. At least I enjoy it this way
And you nailed it. Parker is a really good school. As is Coltrane.
Absolutely lovely work mate, I've been working Ornithology for a long time and your work up the neck has really inspired me.
really? i feel flatered by your comment although i am still a rookie in this bebop stuff.
